Temporal bone myxomas may be related to the Carney complex in some cases, characterized by various cardiac and cutaneous myxomas, melanotic schwannomas, endocrine tumors and cutaneous pigmentary manifestations (1-3, 7).
Cutaneous myxomas usually form a part of syndromes like NAME syndrome (nevi, atrial myxoma, myxoid neurofibromata and ephelides) and the LAMB syndrome (lentigines, atrial myxoma, mucocutaneous myxoma, and blue nevi).
Other manifestations of Carney's syndrome include cutaneous myxomas, hyperpigmentation of the skin, and endocrinopathies [7].
